Ok, this isn't the best of the pictures that I've posted, but it will give you a bit of an idea of the pattern in the King Cole sweater. I would take more, but I'm debating on whether to finish the sweater as it, or frog it...why?
Because as I was putting on the last stitch holder at this point, I went to pull out the smaler tips of my needles to start the sleeves, and discovered I'd been using the 4.5mm tips rather than the 4.omm tips. I thought as I laid this sweater down like this, that it was looking a bit on the wide. side. ulg. What a pain. I'm going to measure it - later and see how much wider it turned out to be before making my decision. In the meantime I did what any other knitter would do....
I cast on for another baby sweater! This is the Lonestar sweater from P2Designs. I'm using Bernat Satin Sport weight yarn. The original pattern was worked up in Bernat Sox yarn. However, since I found this pattern several years ago, I've not been able to find the solid colors in the Sox. I have to say...this is feeling really soft! And I like the way it's working up. Certainly hope it will withstand repeated washings! This is the kind of sweater that should be passed around between family members. We'll see how this one turns out. Rather than sew on a felted star, I am going to knit in a star intarsia style. You can find the pattern here:
